This happened in a house that I moved out of with my family not too long ago. It was a normal house with one storey and a half finished basement. I had never really had anything paranormal happen to me in that house.
The only events I can remember other than the story I'm about to tell is that I got up once in the middle of the night to use the restroom and saw an orange glow just floating in midair. It was most likely just those spots you get over your vision after looking at a bright light for too long. The only thing was it was only there for about a second when usually it takes about fifteen seconds for theses "spots" to fade and there is usually more than one. But I really just look at this as a figment if my imagination.
The only reason I know that I saw what I did is because another time my sister saw it as well. I was in my dining room upstairs and for some reason that I don't remember I looked out the window and like most little sisters, she loves to copy her older siblings. So I pulled the curtain back and looked out at my backyard. Then something very surprising happened, a bright white light moved from one end of my backyard to the other. It wasn't a plane or helicopter light because there was no noise. My sister asked me "Did you see that light?" I quickly replied that I hadn't seen a thing and that it was just her imagination, I said this only because I didn't want to freak her out.
Does anyone have an idea what this light could have been? I really don't think that it was a flashlight or anything because no one was in my backyard. This really puzzles me.
